Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as “Best New Artist” of 2005 and going on to sell more than 23 million albums and 109 million singles worldwide, Maroon 5’s releases have gone Gold and Platinum in more than 35 countries.

In New Zealand, the band has sold nearly 150,000 albums (10-times platinum) and more than 280,000 singles, seven of those singles hitting the RIANZ Top 10 including massive #1s ‘Payphone’, ‘One More Night’ (both three-times platinum) and ‘Moves Like Jagger’ (five-times platinum).

The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their RIANZ #1, five-times platinum debut album, Songs About Jane and their platinum album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long, which included hits ‘Makes Me Wonder’ and ‘If I Never See your Face Again’.

In 2010, the band released their third studio album, Hands All Over, which featured the group's anthemic chart-topping smash single ‘Moves Like Jagger’. The song has since gone on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time in the US.

Maroon 5’s fourth album, Overexposed (also platinum) hit the RIANZ Top 5 and reinforced the group’s status as a US powerhouse in popular music with all of its singles rising to the top of the US charts and setting an all time record for the most #1s (six in total) by a group in the US Top 40 chart’s 20-year history. In conjunction with the album, Maroon 5 wrapped one of the highest grossing tours of 2013 with more than 50 million dollars in ticket sales.

Their latest album, V, debuted at #11 on the RIANZ Chart and #1 in the US, featuring hits ‘Maps’, US #1 ‘Animals’ and latest single ‘Sugar’ which is already a Top 5 smash in New Zealand and certified platinum.

Special guest on all shows is Swedish trio, DIRTY LOOPS. Formed in 2008 while attending the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, the band’s big break came when their version of Lady Gaga's ‘Just Dance’ became an overnight viral sensation. They followed it up with creative covers of pop songs by Justin Bieber, Adele, Rihanna, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. The band released their debut album Loopified on Universal Records in 2014, which boasts ten original tracks including standout single ‘Hit Me’.

After touring extensively around the world, this will mark the band’s first ever trip to New Zealand. With noted fans from Avicii to Stevie Wonder, the band’s infectious energy and pop fusion live show is not to be missed.
